James Cameron’s Free “Safe Passage Premiere” Documentary

On Thursday, February 23rd, at 6:30PM, Inspiration of Sedona will present a free Arizona premiere screening of National Geographic Channel’s season two of James Cameron’s Emmy award-winning documentary series “Years of Living Dangerously,” followed by an open, public discussion. You are invited to see season two’s episode seven, “Safe Passage,” of the exciting, critically acclaimed “Years of Living Dangerously” documentary series. For more information, visit yearsoflivingdangerously.com. View trailers at http://yearsoflivingdangerously.com/video/ty-burrell-years-living-dangerously/ & http://yearsoflivingdangerously.com/video/bradley-whitford-years-living-dangerously/. Almost one-fifth of all carbon emissions in the world come from the transportation sector. In episode seven, “Safe Passage,” actor Ty Burrell takes to the road to see the environmental revolutions being made in electric vehicles (EVs) and automated vehicles (AVs). Burrell visits Silicon Valley to learn about AV advancements and hear how big automakers are pouring major capital into AV technology. In Atlanta, where some of the country’s most generous EV incentives were recently killed, Burrell makes a visit to see the effects and hear firsthand from EV advocates. Meanwhile, “West Wing” star Bradley Whitford travels to Capitol Hill to explore the growing movement to get Republicans to admit that climate change is real and to commit to doing something about it. He tells the story of Jay Butera, who has spent the past 10 years lobbying Republicans on climate. For Butera, it’s not about brow-beating lawmakers with facts; it’s about providing solutions they can get behind to forge a bipartisan majority to act. Whitford follows Butera and some of the members of Congress he’s convinced, to see if this movement can be sustained. Produced in collaboration with The Years Project and from executive producers James Cameron, Jerry Weintraub and Arnold Schwarzenegger, “Years of Living Dangerously” once again features some of Hollywood’s biggest influencers who are passionate about environmental issues. It reveals emotional and hard-hitting accounts of the effects of climate change from across the planet. These Hollywood actors and producers act as correspondents that give first-person accounts from locations — some shockingly close to home, others in far-flung corners of the globe — where the effects of climate change are most prevalent. They cover crucial issues, like severe hurricanes, deforestation, the solar energy crisis, climate migrants, historic droughts and the rapidly increasing extinction rate of our planet’s wildlife. The result is a gritty and raw look at not only how our species has impacted our planet but also how we can save it for future generations. The first season was hailed as “the most important television series ever,” “unexpected, character-driven stories” and “compelling, and frankly terrifying.” “Years of Living Dangerously” won the 2014 Emmy award for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series and was executive produced by James Cameron, Jerry Weintraub and Arnold Schwarzenegger, along with Emmy-winning “60 Minutes” producers Joel Bach and David Gelber, and climate expert Daniel Abbasi. Members of the Flagstaff Chapter of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby, which is featured in the documentary, will join us after the film for the open, public discussion. They are working on a national climate change solution—Carbon Fee and Dividend. They will be available to answer questions about how pricing carbon and returning the revenue to households can reduce greenhouse gases and boost the economy, and about their unique approach to building political will in a politically divided nation. The Inspiration of Sedona meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month. It is a non-profit, open meeting group, that strives to work together collectively for the betterment of ourselves, our communities, and the world. Its current format involves presenting inspiring and personally empowering events about the environmental and socially related issues we’re collectively facing, followed by interactive discussion. Please be a part of the inspiration by joining us on Thursday, February 23rd, at 6:30PM, at the Church of the Red Rocks, 54 Bowstring Drive, Sedona, for this inspiring and exciting, community action-related, free premiere documentary film and discussion.
